Tagged Volume Rendering of the Heart
We present a novel system for 3-D visualisation of the heart and coronary arteries. Binary tags (generated offline) are combined with value-gradient transfer functions (specified online) allowing for interactive visualisation, while relaxing the offline segmentation criteria. The arteries are roughly segmented using a Hessian-based line filter and the pericardial cavity using a Fast Marching active contour. A comparison of different contour initialisations reveals that simple geometric shapes (such as spheres or extruded polygons) produce suitable results.
